CYS: Up Up and Away!

Hi friends ~
Happy Tuesday!

Today's card is from the Challenge Your Stash (CYS) card group
Each month, there is a new theme
and we create a card based on what the challenge is.
Fun, right!

This month, the theme was chosen by our friend, Jeanette
who said:

Create a card that includes something that begins with 
each of at least three of the letters in the word JULY.

I love it!
One last hurrah for July as we head into August.
I never know what day of the week it is
and can't believe we went from March to August - just. like. that!

So here is my card and the letters U, L, Y

U = Up (up and away)
L = Love
Y = Yellow

I created this card by making a watercolor background with
acetate and ink and the smoosh technique.
I ran it through a stitched rectangle
and added my favorite stitched cloud die from CC Designs.
The cute critters are from W Plus 9 stamp and die set "Going Places."

And here's the very simple inside:

And that's my card for today!

Thanks for stopping by,
Big hugs, bigger blessings!
